Although he hasn’t spent time wearing a Dbacks uniform, Matt Kemp should also be a familiar face to Arizona fans. Ever since his debut in 2006, Kemp has been a staple in the National League West. Of course he spent the majority of his career with the more vigorously heated Los Angeles Dodgers. The two time NL All Star was acquired in the off season by San Diego.
Kemp boasts great numbers against Arizona, continually hitting over .300 at the the end of the season against them. On the season, Kemp is hitting .291 with a homer, 18 RBI and 20 runs. He’s got great numbers against the Arizona probable pitchers and should not be taken lightly.
